                                    The lobby of the hotel is of a great standard and has been converted from the previous reserve bank building. Staff were polite and helpful.

                                    The breakfast buffet was the standard of a three star hotel. The smoked salmon was grey and the bacon was burnt. The pastry range was limited to a few and very doughy. The swimming pool is provided by another establishment in another building.

                                    The location is excellent,you can get around very easily.The decor is stunning and the rooms are luxurious.The fact that I could sit in the bath watching tv or listening to music was relaxing.The bed was one of the most comfortable that I ever slept in and the choice of pillows was also welcoming.

                                    I was not aware of the service offered by the hotel of taking clents to destimations within a 20km radius.I was also not aware of the rooftop cocktail bar.I think that when you arrive at the hotel the concierge should give you a run down on all activities and services offered at the hotel.

                                    The location was perfect - close to everything. The hotel staff was able to surprise and delight all the time. The three Concierge that we dealt with were amazing - knowledgeable and helpful. The woman at the front desk who checked us in actually walked us to our room to explain the various room amenities to us personally. We had dinner one night at the Bombay Brasserie there at the Hotel and it was one of the most amazing culinary experiences I have ever been through. We selected the wine pairing meal where the chef chose what we ate and paired each course with various South African wines. This meal is truly not to be missed!

                                    I couldn't think of a single thing we didn't like about the Taj Cape Town.

                                    Taj did not alert us that we could get frequent flyer mile credits through Star alliance or American Air, Delta e tc

                                    Room comforts

                                    A: We had three people ringing our door bell during the evening. The first for turndown at 7pm while we were still preparing to gou out (too early and disruptive), the second from a person ("supervisor") around 10 a clock to hear if all was fine ( Very disruptive) and then a third later that night for again some enquiry that I could not remember what it was for. For a one night stay, 3 calls are excessive - we did not think to put up the do not disturb sign after the turndown was done. B: The roll down for bathroom privacy did not work - it rolls down but does not lock. Spent long frustrating minutes to try and fix that standing on top of the bath surround. C: The wrong car was delivered to us by valet parking...almost packing our bags in it as well. The valet parker almost appear surprised that I even questioned their delivery (he was not rude though) and pointing out to him that the voucher / key of the car belonged to a guest "Mr Baloyi" and that I am not Mr Baloyi brought a smile to his face. The right car was brought up eventually.

                                    Perfect position in the middle of the town, not far away from the restaurants on Long Street. Clean and large room (we stayed in a luxury one, though) with nice view out of the window.

                                    Clerk at the reception was a little bit on auto-pilot and not particularly friendly.
